Legos and

vacation camps

Pepperell Recreation is pleased to offer the following classes during the December school vacation:

* Battle Bots — Using very advanced LEGO® parts and pieces, students learn to design and build their own motorized battle cars and other vehicles. By using principles of simple and complex machines, gearing and mechanical advantage, students then try flip, push or smash their opponent’s battle vehicles. Brain over brawn through applied physics. This insight into physics will stay with them forever. For ages 8 and older.

Dates: Dec. 29-31, 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Cost $102, maximum 10 sign-ups.

We will break for lunch, so please bring a lunch and drink.
